Sadly, NBC has decided to NOT pick up the DOWNWARDLY MOBILE pilot. People will feel shocked (as I was when I got the news), but in hindsight, it makes perfect sense. The pilot was going to bring a true representation of the 99% to TV again, at a time when the 99%-ers could really USE a good laugh about the 1%-ers. But guess who is part of that 1%? YUP- NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX. This pilot needs a 1% network that has 100% balls.”
DOWNWARDLY MOBILE AND PROUD. the cast of the NBC tv pilot DOWNWARDLY MOBILE— plucked from this nation’s finest trailer park casting couches by director Gail “Mullets” Mancuso and exec producer/writer- Eric “Not Bob Denver” Gilliland.
we’re so sexy. and funny. we’re… FEXY.
and we all have crushes on the 99%.
from left to right (top row) Gail Mancuso (dir.), Sir John Goodman, Dame Roseanne Barr, Eric Gilliand (Producer & Writer) Jason Antoon, Romy Rosemont, Tricia O’Kelly, (bottom row) Mary Birdsong, Hector Duran, Kendra Jain.
p.s. did i mention that the pilot was shot on the SEINFELD soundstage? uh…yeah.
p.p.s. neat trivia— both tv’s matt perry and movieses’ ryan reynolds wrote jokes for this tv pilot. it made me suk my stomach in a lot while we were shooting. :-)
